Titanic SOS!
Radio equipment was rapidly adopted on ships in the opening years of the twentieth century. By 1906, +ITU had already forged an Agreement to ensure an efficient international service - establishing Morse-code 'SOS' as the international maritime distress call and a commitment to give absolute priority to all distress messages sent by radio. Following the tragic sinking of the #Titanic on 15 April 1912, ITU moved quickly to agree on a common wavelength for ships' radio distress signals, and ships were instructed to maintain radio silence at specific times for operators to listen for potential distress calls.
